I love Berube's system and all of the changes he's made. However, we give up WAY TOO MANY short handed chances. More often than not it's Voracek making a low percentage play on the puck rather then dropping back to defend. The umbrella is great, but it seems like on every one of our powerplays the other team gets at least one solid chance, odd-man situation, or breakaway. How do we fix it?
